Amadeus – Books Down…sort of!

In the shadows...beyond the view of Salieri & Mozart...Citizens peruse the script!

In the shadows…beyond the view of Salieri & Mozart…Citizens peruse the script!

Divine, creative…yes…but awash in passion and jealousy….just for a start!

Amadeus enters a new level for the cast at the Heidelberg Theatre in Rosanna with books down for Act 1.

“….Savage whispers fill the theatre……(PS)” and the dialogue takes on greater impact, with deeper nuances as the actors drape themselves in the mantle of Shaffer’s ensemble.

Amadeus is a highly fictionalised account of the lives of composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. The play focuses on Salieri who, propelled by jealousy and intense dislike, plots the downfall of his rival Mozart. Though Salieri believes Mozart’s work to be divine, he cannot fathom why God has favoured such a vulgar creature to be his creative instrument.

This magnificent play won the 1981 Tony Award for Best Play. The 1984 film won 8 academy awards including best film and best actor

Be sure not to miss this stunning 18th century costume drama – a superb theatrical event
